I started to paint pet portraits when a few of my Mum's friends saw my A level sketchbooks and asked me if I could paint their dogs. The more I did, the more people would ask and that really got me thinking...I could make something of this. I set up the instagram @tialouiseart in 2019 and thanks to the support from my lovely customers, the demand has continued to grow. Recently, I have expanded to customising trainers and I am excited to see where this route will take me. Currently, I am a full time student at the University of Derby studying to become a primary school teacher, but I would love to make creating art a full time career one day.
